It’s generally great to see a close buddy — regardless of whether it is in flashback structure.

Emily VanCamp makes her close to home re-visitation of Fox’s The Resident in this select clasp from the May 17 season five finale.

As fans know, Emily’s personality Nic passed on after being engaged in an auto collision in season four. Along these lines, it was simply conceivable to bring the person back in a flashback, as found in the new scene where she stands up to her better half Conrad (Matt Czuchry) after she sees him embrace one more lady at a bar.

“Not the picture I need in my mind when I’m at home nursing our little girl and changing her diapers,” Nic tells Conrad. Conrad guarantees Nic that there’s more going on than might be immediately obvious and requests that Nic meet him outside so he can make sense of it.

“They determined Anna’s significant other to have stage IV lymphoma two months prior,” Conrad says.

Nic questions why she’s out at a bar without anyone else, assuming that is to be sure of the situation.

“She isn’t. She’s with her sweethearts,” Conrad guarantees her. “It’s her birthday. Her significant other’s in the clinic in the wake of having a terrible response to chemo. He’s in the ICU. Companions chose to move her out and away from a circumstance she had no control over. She’ll be back in a couple of hours, dozes in his room.”

Nic requires one moment to handle the news before saying, “I am so grieved, I didn’t have the foggiest idea.”

Eventually, it ends up a sweet second for the couple.

“You don’t have anything to be stressed over,” Conrad tells Nic. “You’re the main lady I adored starting from the principal second I saw you, and I can’t envision existence without you.”

Alright, we as a whole are crying.

VanCamp is set to show up in “four, perhaps five” scenes in the season finale as per The Resident co-showrunner Peter Elkoff.

“[Conrad] hasn’t had the option to take action and track down that next affection. He knows that he’s trapped before, as it were, with Nic,” Elkoff enlightened TVLine concerning her large return. “He understands he needs to unstick himself, and he doesn’t exactly have the foggiest idea how to make it happen. He gets some solid counsel about it.”

While the Nic return might be brief, we’re glad to take what we can get.

Watch the season finale of The Resident when it airs on May 17 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
